The book examines the forceful impact of the Industrial revolution on the material condition of the masses and how it changed social relations in Berar, the prime cotton producing region within the empire. It also studies the activities of the colonial state in the context of a world economy driven by the cotton crisis due to American civil war and addresses the critical linkage between cotton, British imperialism and famine in Berar.
